There was more pop to be had last week, with a return to Pressed by West Coaster Jay Arner. But first, here's locals Herons Wake. They've had a bunch of shows lately but this is the first chanc I've had to catch them live. I liked them quite a bit; live their sound is quite reminiscent of one of my personal faves, Roy Montgomery (Pin Group, Dissolve, etc.). Here's vocalist Silvana, mainman Jacob and a much-obscured Dylan on bass.
Keyboard action with Aidan!
Singalong action with Silvana and Jacob!
More Silvana and Dylan!
And so on!
Supermoon, like Arner, hail from Vancouver (and play their homecoming show their tonight). Here's bassist Adrienne!
Guitar action with Alie!
Katie sings! There was a lot of passing around of the microphone.
Jay rounded thing off with a brisk set of power-pop.
More Jay! Adrienne was pulling double-duty on bass.
Keyboard action with Jessica. Jay and Jessica have a lo-fi psych-synth band called Energy Slime that's well worth checking out.
Percussive action with Adam!
Excellent stuff throughout.
